our services

consultations
Seddon Vet Hospital offers thorough, and affordable veterinary consultations 6 days a week, Monday through to Saturday. 
 
We are available for everything from general health checks, to urgent health visits – so if you are worried about your pet’s health, please call us to make an appointment.
 
Our standard vet consultations are up to 20 minutes long, but if you think you might need more time with the vet, let our friendly staff know when booking your appointment. 
vaccinations

Vaccinating your pet is one of the most important things you can do as a pet owner, to ensure they lead a healthy life.

Vaccinations protect against preventable diseases; namely those transmissible by other pets in boarding facilities, parks, and even vet hospitals. If your pet has to be hospitalised for any illness, their immune system may already be compromised – vaccinations work to ensure that they are protected in these environments.

Vaccinations are also dramatically less expensive than the cost of treatment for the diseases they protect against.

microchipping
Here at Seddon Vet Hospital, we always want to make sure that your furry family members are safe and sound.
 
One of the easiest ways to ensure that your precious pet makes their way home to you if they adventure beyond your home is to ensure that they are microchipped.
 
We also recommend you have an ID tag attached to your pet’s collar as this can speed up the lost and found process. 
desexing

Desexing or neutering involves removing part of a pet’s reproductive system so that they can’t reproduce.

Primarily, we perform this procedure in dogs and cats, but we encourage desexing other pets like rabbits and ferrets to avoid unwanted babies, and health issues that can arise due to fertility or birth.

In female animals, desexing is called a “spey” and in males it is referred to as “castration” or “neutering”. 

dentistry

Dental disease is one of the most common diseases in cats and dogs in Seddon, in fact, as many as 3 out of every 4 cats and dogs over the age of three have some form of dental disease!

Not only is it painful for your pet, but the increased bacteria associated with dental disease can actually cause serious complications for your pet in the form of kidney, heart, and liver disease. 

xrays

Our state of the art digital X-ray machine allows us to process and examine X-ray images of your pet quickly, aiding in diagnosing and treating a variety of conditions. Occasionally we will even utilise X-ray in order to determine levels of dental disease in your pet.

It is not unusual for sedation to be necessary for your pet in order to be X-rayed – but be assured that we will discuss the chances of this with you beforehand.

ultrasound

Ultrasound scanning uses high frequency sound waves to generate images of internal structures. When the sound waves are pointed at the body, some of the waves are absorbed, and some bounce back.

The ones that bounce back are measured by the machine and processed into an image for us to examine. It’s possible that your pet’s fur may obstruct the ultrasound scan, so do not be alarmed if your pet comes home with a shaved patch!

soft tissue surgery

The highly skilled veterinarians at Seddon Vet Hospital are experienced in all forms of soft tissue surgery and are committed to getting the best outcome for your pet’s health. Soft tissue refers to parts not associated with the nervous (brain) and musculoskeletal (bone) systems.

cruciate repairs (de angelis)

Our vets most commonly perform orthopaedic surgeries to repair broken bones, correct defects like luxating patellas, and ruptured cruciate ligaments in dogs.

If your pet requires orthopaedic surgery, our staff will take the time to explain exactly what will be involved for your pet.
